A Path Less Traveled

I'm here! I'm heere!! Sorry for the absences here on the blog this week. Everyone is crazy busy. I, for one, am crazy busy in a good way. My hubby who has been gone since March (gotta love the Navy life) is back home. Yippee!!

Last week, on Thursday's Thoughts, I shared with you a sneak peek of this month's fabulous Smarty Pants kit. The Gallery will go live on Saturday at 10 PM EST. But, in the meantime, I thought I would share a peek into one of my projects for the October Gallery. Our theme is "Lessons". A pretty obvious choice due to the school-related-looking patterened papers. I printed some pictures of my eldest son on the first day of second grade and started creating. I even glimmer-misted!! So much fun. I highly recommend it.

I digress, yet again. But, when it came time to journal my page, I completely switched gears. While my hubby was away, my 8yo really stepped up and taught me a lot of things. A lesson, I guess you could say... I titled my page "He is My Rock". The hidden journaling (written on a Jillibean Sprout tucked behind the picture) says "he's my #1 child; he's my friend; he's my helper; he's the one I can count on; he's the one I leaned on." It's ok to use pictures that don't match your story, just like I did here. And, I still got to show off some of those great first day shots we all loove to take.
